Abigail Hutchins (Abigail3 Whitney, Joshua2, John1), daughter of John and Abigail3 (Whitney) Hutchins, was born 14 Sep 1698, Groton, MA,[1] and died 1 Dec 1775, Tolland, CT.[2]

She married firstly, circa 1721, Isaac Fellows, son of John and Rachel (Varney) Fellows. He was born 1 Sep 1696, Plainfield, CT, and died 26 Aug 1755, Tolland, CT. He later moved to Tolland, Connectiicut, around 1745. He died August 26, 1775, and was buried in the South Cemetery in Tolland. The headstone of his grave which is still discernable reads: "Here Lyes Interred the Body of Isaac Fellows, who was born Sept. ye 1st 1696 and Decesed Sep-August 26, A.D. 1755 in ye 59 years of his Age." The uncertainty over the Sept-August date was probably due to the confusion then in effect over the introduction of the new Gregorian calendar into the American colonies around the year 1752 [source: Mark Fellows via].

She married secondly, 10 Feb 1757, Coventry, CT, Francis Willson. He was born say 1695.
